A Little Rain, A Big Win

Saturday we headed east to see the Vols kick off their season. We have season tickets again this year and I think these may be the best season ticket seats we've had so far.

It was super hot when we first got there. So hot that we actually saw several people need an ambulance due to heat exhaustion. But, right after we got settled into our seats we noticed that the sky was looking pretty spooky. The wind was picking up and the temperature dropped about 15 degrees.Then they evacuated the lower tier of the stadium and we ran for cover. The man that was standing in front of me (and shielding me from the sideways sheets of rain!) said that he has had his seats for 16 years and he's never been asked to leave his seat due to weather before!

The rain and lightening caused about an hour and a half delay. They were showing the radar on the jumbotron.

But after the delay, it was football time in Tennessee!

The Vols ended up beating Montana by around 30 points, I can't remember exactly and I could look it up, but it's really not that important :) We look forward to more weekend road trips to Knoxville this fall!
